Johnny & Associates has joined 2018, well at least in one way. The company has lifted their ban on the online use of images of their talent.
Johnnys & Associates is lifting some restrictions on the use of images of its talent on online media. Prior to this, Johnnys have restricted the use of their talents’ images and limited it to newspapers and magazines. For purposes of press conferences, interviews and stage greetings, images of Johnnys can now be used for online news sites.
For those unfamiliar with the almost comical nature of Johnny’s, yes, they have actually been enforcing that this entire time.
As you may have noticed, this lifting of their restrictions started with Nishikido Ryo‘s press conference for his upcoming movie, ‘Hitsuji No Ki‘.
